I would throw some chicken quarters in there as well, and then as maintenance try half kibble half raw. I'm not kidding, raw is a lifesaver for hard keepers like Sirius and Nemo.

Speaking of, you may want to consider feeding puppy food to Nemo since it is calorically more dense than regular adult. I may also look into foods with a high quality grain, like millet, to help put on weight.

Here's my site with the Satin Balls recipe...I copied it to my site, so I couldn't lose it...it's half and quarter batches.

I just made some Satin Balls a few months ago to get some weight back on Score fast, he just dropped a ton all of a sudden. Within days, he was gaining weight.
They're balanced...and have so much fiber and such, that they rarely get diarrhea from them.

They stink...but the dogs love that.

Why do I have this awful feeling of deja vu? Oh, wait, yeah, that's right, I had weight problems with Cy!
